Bogner, J.: Gorgonidium beckianum (Araceae), a new species from Bolivia. — Willdenowia 38: 195–200. — ISSN 0511-9618; © 2008 BGBM Berlin-Dahlem. doi:10.3372/wi.38.38114 (available via http://dx.doi.org/)
A new Gorgonidium species from Bolivia, G. beckianum, is described and illustrated. It is characterized by its globular ovary, a subsessile, discoid stigma and shorter, slightly clavate and slender staminodes of the female flowers. G. beckianum is closely related to G. vermicidum and G. striatum, which mainly differ by an ovoid ovary, a distinct style and a star-like or subhemispheric stigma as well as by the shape of their staminodes.
